Our new HQ in Parkersburg

September 12th, 2013 | Posted by Occupy The Roads in OTR - new HQ | Parkersburg
For the last couple days we’ve been working on our new HQ in Parkersburg, WV.  After stocking up on cleaning solutions and scouring pads we donned our mops and gloves then hit the building running. The floor (2nd) is in great shape except for the stairwell which is peeling badly and will need to be scraped.  The main floor has a commercial kitchen, bar/restaurant area, open large gathering or dining room, offices and lots more.  That floor will need to be cleaned and organized.
We plan to have quite a few people working, staying and strategizing from this location. There will be a media team, sustainability team, solutions group, art & music group, direct action, and education branch for documentaries and movie nights. A group will come together on Sept. 19/20 (after we get back from N.Y.) to put democracy in action.
While we’re organizing on the 2nd floor, we’ll have another team fixing the downstairs, where we’ll have a general store, kitchen, library and open mic area.  The building will have a roof top garden in spring and solar energy is in the plans. The possibilities are endless. If you have a skill and like to work as a team, we’d be interested in hearing from you.
